You need to talk to cattitude here on OSO. He's got a 30ft eliminator and wants to step down to a 26. Maybe he will chime in

I think the 33 is the perfect daytona. Rides great, easy to load and unload.

Bigger is usually better.

I sometimes think that I would be happier with a bigger boat. But then I remember that I boat on an inland lake. You really don't need anything bigger than 30-feet on Lake Travis.

I love my 31-foot Bullet. I don't think I would be happier with a bigger boat.

Good luck!

yeah Clay, but just think, if you had a bigger boat, then you'd have more space for more Claymates..........it seems from all the pictures I've been seeing that you have more Claymates than boat...

I will have a 33' for sale soon. (Back problem) but 30' ? 33'? 36'?


Get a 99 or 86.

WOW. Agents 99 and 86... damn I feel old.


(for you youngens. lmao. Get Smart series)

but... 33 is the best overall size. OK to trailer and ok for most sea conditions.
any one knows who is looking for 26' or 27'
I need to sell my smaller boats.
